SOURCE: my eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction

Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

SOURCE: No suction from base or hose attachment

Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

SOURCE: Eureka Optima vacuum has suction at the hose but

The same thing happened to mine- it turns out the belt was broken! So just replce the belt- it's about $4-$5. Your manual should explain how to do this.

My Eureka endeavor nls vacume cleaner will not suck at all. I have taken it apart to clean everything but still nothing what could be wrong with it


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Vacuum maintenance is a general procedure and requirement for all units to ensure suction. Your Eureka can be easily maintained and by doing so properly you will make sure your unit performs at it's peak performance. The following tips will help your vacuums suction.

After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter screen weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

Foam and cloth filters should also be washed and dried weekly, by following the same steps from cleaning the filter screen. Do not use any soap, dishwasher, dryer or washing machine to do so. Allow your filters to air dry for 24 hours before re-installing them in your Eureka.

Replace your HEPA filter and belts every 6 months. Last, make sure to clear your roller brush of any tangles hair strands or debris monthly and to replace at least every year.

Subject: Eureka Tru Hepa Wirlwind Amps Model 4383. Working fine then just stopped. Later worked fine again? What is/was the problem? Does it need a new filter?? also has the # 0108017529 on machine


I'm not sure all machines are the same, but many have thermal overloads on the motor that can only be reset upon cooling, so wait 30 minutes and try again.
Secondly, my vac has 3 filters, one in the dust tray that you empty, one under where that dust collector installs and the HEPA filter on the back.
Ensure that all three are cleaned.

What filters do i need for the eureka the boss bagless vacuum w/widetrack modal 4495


There is a Cassette Micron Filter 60696.If you have a HEPA cartridge filter you need EUREKA's HEPA part 61500.In earlier models there is a micron filter instead of a HEPA filter--for that you need EUREKA's Micron part 60801. But if you have that HEPA filter, the manual says you have to use the HEPA filter to achieve the closed HEPA filtration system again.

Dirt is being trapped in the filter area instead of canister.


The canister has a filter as well. It needs to be replaced or cleaned. A damaged canister filter will feed dirt into the HEPA filter. (and the motor)
An improperly installed filter can allow dirt to bypass the canister filter and collect in the HEPA filter.
I suggest a new canister filter and then clean it carefully every week.
Here is a list of the filters for your vacuum.

Eureka vacuum won't stay running


There is a relay in the system. Based on your description it sounds like yours is bad. The cloth filter is a big pain to remove. I would recommend burrowing a shop vac from a friend and cleaning it that way.

Red light won't go off


To RESET the Electronic Filter Check:
When the filter check light remains on,it is time to check/clean the HEPA-Type
filters and reset the filter check,if needed. With the unit powered on,insert the tip of a ball-point pen or
paperclip into the hole next to the LED filter check light and hold for approximately 5 seconds until the
light turns off (Fig 5). Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),you may need
to check and clean the filters more or less frequently. If the HEPA-Type filters are cleaned before the filter
check light turns on,the filter check should be reset at the same time.
These cleaning intervals are intended as guidelines only. Performance of any filter media is dependent
upon the concentration of contaminates going through the system. High concentrations of contaminates
such as dust,pet dander and smoking will reduce the useful performance of the filter.
NOTE:The HEPA-Type filters are not washable.
